Utah is the one and only premier program in the state.

And YES, having better(higher star) players than we have had previously helped us get this win.

Some teams think they are headed to a national title with 1-2 star nobodies, even though USC, Florida, lsu, Alabama all had high star recruiting classes.

I LOVE my bcs membership!

It's better being better.

2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0
Ogden, UT

Head to head; Utah
Toughest schedule: Utah
Best win: Utah
Worst loss: byu
Best ranking after they are released: Utah

Can't wait to hear the spin from Provo about byU being better still.

Let me say this in advance:


BYU represents my faith
Cheyenne, WY

Congrats to the Utes and the cougs, both teams could finish in the top 25 if they can win on the the road.

I love my FAITH's school and my State's School.

Go prove that both schools can do well.

Things I said since offseason:

Utah would beat byu for fourth time in a row
Utah would beat usu
Utah would split Stanford and Oregon
Utah would go 8-4

This program will be a force in the prestigious PAC 12

Like I said.

It took a few years for recruiting to improve and YES we are getting much better(higher STARS) than we did in our Mwc days.

That's only going to continue!

The future of football in Utah,

Is Utah!

Head to head recruiting last four years more recruits have picked Utah over byu, with many saying the many benefits if the PAC 12 being a big reason

This certainly won't do anything to change that trend!

And once again, every Ute fan post so far somehow references BYU! Ah, the joy of being a Y fan...in some Ute fan minds we'll always be better somehow, even when we're not. And ChrisB, everyone's favorite secret BYU fan trying to make Ute fans look bad (that's really the only reasonable explanation for this guy), continues to work out his many issues on the DesNews boards.

All that said, congratulations to the Utah football team on an awesome signature win.


Voice, all prior posts were by one person, obviously.

Farmington, UT

Of course truly objective sports fans will say the same thing about Stanford as they did about Texas: "They were obviously over-ranked."

Holladay, UT

By the way, in the PAC-12, Utah hasn't lost at Colorado or Arizona! No sense doing research, right? Epic fail!

Congrats to Utah for their huge win!!!

Go Cougs!!!


Great win by Utah! While it was unexpected but hoped for, it is great to see the Utes improve, gotta keep that up!

Lindon, UT

Why would a person go to all the trouble of setting up a new account in honor of tonight's game and get the team wrong? Utah 27 USC 21 Really? Didn't Utah just beat Stanford by that score?

Go Utes, CA

Usually like Rock's stuff, but this was horrible.

Boy, Brad Rock seems like a bitter man!

Rock all in all a B+ on the article, you complement Utah with paradoxical spins with each positive remark.

But Ill give you the benefit, Im sure its difficult being a byU fan writing an article about your adversary.

Rock its not to late to convert, "CTR" Choose The Red! you know the University that Prophets graduate from.

Thanks Rock

Greenfield, IN

Utah didn't lose at Colorado--they lost that one at home.

North Salt Lake, UT

You know what's funny? Even when making up a troll account ChrisB gets it wrong.

You beat STANFORD, not USC, 27-21.

I agree. Besides "oh so bodacious" Rock Monster seemed miffed for some reason. Maybe he should have waited at least 24 hours to imply that the Utes need to move on, because this win was awesome!

Keep up the good work against Zona! Go Utes!

Santa Monica, CA

Rock you let your bitterness over Utahs wins over BYU and last nights signature win over a top five juggernaut and a truly terrific team (much better than the team we slapped silly in their own place a couple of months ago--heh heh jest sayin')--hamper your research. Be a pro! Look up the scores and past games and get it right. The Utes won at Colorado.

"Of course truly objective sports fans will say the same thing about Stanford as they did about Texas: "They were obviously over-ranked."

No, they won't (and aren't). Not even close.
